We’ve seen videos of Tesla electric cars decimating several different internal combustion challengers down the quarter-mile, but less common are videos of electric motorcycles drag racing the competition. Which makes this video pretty interesting.
In it we have the Energica Ego electric motorcycle, which boasts 136 hp and 144 lb-ft of torque, the latter figure a stunning number for any two-wheeler. To see how it would do against its gas-powered counterparts, the Pedercini World Superbike team brought out its WSBK-spec Kawasaki ZX-10R and a stock ZX-10R. Then, for kicks, a Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570 Super Trofeo lines up alongside the Energica.
As expected, off the line the electric jumps to the holeshot against all of its competitors. But what happens after that? See the video below to find out.
